Crooked Bridge (Kriva Cuprija), Mostar

4.3
Crooked Bridge (Kriva Cuprija) was designed and built as a test model for the construction of the bigger and more famous Old Bridge. The Turks built the model to see whether a bridge with such a semicircular stone arch could withstand loads. The bridge was mentioned for the first time in the endowment of a wealthy merchant, Cejvan Cehaja, in 1558, which means that it was built at least eight years before the Old Bridge. Climb the stone steps on either side of the bridge and walk over its cobblestoned path. The arch is a perfect semicircle measuring 8.56 m (28 ft) wide and 4.15 m (13.6 ft) tall. Floods destroyed the bridge in 2001, but it was rebuilt on the initiative of UNESCO.

  • The little bridge look quite nice with old style surrounding. At night quite atmospheric, early morning very quiet and creepy.  more »
  • A nice piece of the Old town of Mostar. Lots of old building turned into taverns and restaurants, catering for any taste, and serving tasty Balkan dishes  more »
  • Called also the small bridge, located not far walk from the famous Mostar Bridge, that it doesn't pay not mine and is less frequent that the famous, but it is worth a visit anyway, being located in a bucolic and pleasant to the sight. A must see!
